Minami-ke Tadaima みなみけ ただいま

Minami-ke Tadaima is the 4th season of the ever popular Slice of life anime Minami-ke. Though it is the first season that has place itself as the 220th popular Anime series, its Sequels aren’t that popular specially this fourth season.  Minami-Ke Tadaima is part of Winter 2013 Anime Listing and a lot of Minami-ke fans came to see but many we’re quite disappointed. I’m not I think it was great!



Since the last season everything is still the same.


Basically, you will expect to finally see one of the many twists of their daily lives to be straighten out. Will there be confessions, will there be exposure and will they finally meet. Sadly the story proceeds having these storylines ready to be twisted at anytime. Its not all bad these turn of events didn’t happen but are slowly being unraveled as every character begins to meet with each other establishing connections that may be the result of, Fujioka finally confessing to kana, Hosaka finally talking with Haruka, Mako-chan revealed as Makoto, etc…

Unlike the second season of Minami-ke, this season have stayed true to its original art and color pallet. The settings are same as before, School, Home, Grocery Store, etc…

Also they added this Minami-Quest bit on the part right before i guess commercial break its just an image but it does tell a story every episode. Its very cute to see how they use characters in the series as the wizard or princess. Anyway its not a big deal but it is fun looking at those 2 pics per episode and creating a story in your head.

Humor is one of the fine things in this fine series, even though they maintained each skit’s logic and procedure, overall it lacks something important. The first season of Minami-ke did have more of a certain randomness which many would agree however that is due to the fact that the series in the first season have the characters introduced to a new situation wherein the 4th season have had the characters already used to their positions and there for it is no longer a big deal.

A good example is Mako-chan. We have to see him uncomfortably act all feminine buying female clothes to be able to hang out with the minami sisters specially Haruka and whatnot that… yeah that was hilarious compared to the 4th season’s mako-chan whose goal is to finally confess that he has been Makoto all along but he can’t since he had gained chiaki’s trust.

The ending is quite hilarious, its a Hosaka bit anyway just check it out yourself.


I think Minami-ke Tadaima has lost its touch on purpose its not because the writers didn’t do a good job but rather the story has just been going with its flow. The goal of Minami-ke Tadaima is to continue on, using the Minami sisters as the bridges to all the other characters in the series. Notice how they are getting to know each other little by little? that’s intended, the twists that has yet to happen didn’t happen because they will stack this up until the very last season which i expect to be surprisingly hilarious and at the same time be satisfying that the excitement build-up finally has been released.

    Well, to me, it’s quite good to me 🙂 and I wishing for more if may.
    It’s true that at first it was too random, thus I find it hard to liking it and nearly decide to drop it, but after watching a few episodes, I got addicted 😛

    The turn event never happen because it’s purposed to Comedy I think (like Hayate no Gotoku), the turn event will make the anime turned into Romance and become another story because the mood will become more serious. But I do want that happen though, hehe ;D

    “I wish that there will be more season of Minami-ke”

    The first season will always be the best but I think seasons 3 and 4 improved quite a bit since the “meh” second season.
